Popovers

1 ½ cups of whole milk

3 large eggs 

1 ½ cups of all purpose white flour

3 tablespoons canola oil, or other high-heat oil

  • Put oven rack in lower middle of oven
  • Preheat oven to 450°. Put ungreased popover pan in oven to preheat
  1. Place the milk, eggs, and flour into a blender, in the order listed above.
  2. Blend on medium for 30 seconds, then scrape down sides to make sure everything is mixed well. Add the canola oil, and blend another 30 seconds
  3. Carefully remove the very hot popover pan and spray with cooking spray, or carefully us canola oil to lightly coat the entire pan
  4. Pour the batter into each popover cavity, filling them approximately ¾ full. Bake on the center of the rack, for 25 minutes. Do not open the oven door while they’re baking
  5. At end of 25 minutes, crack open the oven door for 4 minutes before removing the popovers.  Do this by keeping the door barely open with a wooden spoon wedged into the door opening to keep it from closing
  6. Serve warm, with either butter and jam, or with beef and gravy

Yield: six popovers
